How often have you given up before you even started?
Did someone tell you that you couldn’t do it?
Are you the one who doesn’t believe in you?
Do you not feel you can achieve results expected of you?
Are you the one placing expectations on yourself?
If you must take baby steps to get there, it’s ok;
better to arrive some day than never at all.
After all, we often find the journey to be more important then the destination.
The point is to pack your suitcase and head out.
Tuck courage in your back pocket and fly by the seat of your pants;
sometimes that’s the only way to travel.
Dare to attempt the impossible.
Most of the things we deem impossible aren’t;
they’re only improbable.
Remember there’s a huge difference between impossible and improbable.
You might be the one small thing that makes the difference.
You will seldom regret opportunity,
but you will regret letting opportunity pass you by.
Have faith if the outcome is not your anticipated results;
know things do not always happen in your timing.
Don’t regret failure; regret never trying.
Don’t let fear crush your dreams.
Know you are capable of great things.
Just go for it.
Shoot for the moon.
Trust in the process.
Believe in yourself.

Living in the Gap
January 6, 2012 – Moonlight
Photographing the moon has become an obsession for Dirt Man and me. I have been throwing myself out in the cold dark night every couple of days in hopes of some good shots. I’ve gotten some incredible shots, however I admit Dirt Man’s are a bit better. He has much more knowledge and experience with manual camera settings. Kudos to him for attempting to teach me. Again, I headed out and a few minutes later Dirt Man followed and took over. In the light of the moon with the cold air biting our necks and numbing our fingers, we maneuvered the tripod and camera. We aimed above our heads and over the back of the house, fumbling through the darkness, only seeing what was visible in the sky or on the camera lens. The puffing of rising breath settled in a mist in front of us. Funny though when we got what we were after, we felt warm inside…no change in the temperature outside.
